How to Repair an Ugly Lawn. Landscape Renovation Ideas.

   Are you fed up with looking at huge brown patches in your yard?  Has Crabgrass created its on zip code on your property? Many homeowners spend countless hours, and dollars, attempting to achieve that green lawn like their neighbors.  Many of these attempts fall short due to not focusing on the key elements needed for grass to thrive and out-compete pests and weather conditions.  So if you seeded your lawn last Spring with no luck, or you applied some box store product and weren’t impressed, this post will help guide you through which steps to take next this year.   Start With The Soil Many times lawn repair efforts are targeted at grass and chemicals, forgetting about the most important factor for lawn growth; your soil. Poor soil will prevent root growth, stunt seed germination, and allow weeds and fungus to out compete even the best grass varieties.  The following are common soil problems and how to fix them.. Compaction – Tight soil structure prevents the movement of roots during growth periods.  It also prevents proper water drainage, which is a breeding ground for fungus.  Regular aeration will help with moderate compaction. Some highly compacted areas will need to be amended with topsoil or organic matter, like Humus. pH Levels – the acidity level of soil determines which type of plant will survive and how well it can deter unwanted pests. Proper soil pH levels should be between 6.5-7.  Acidic pH levels are common and can be corrected with heavy lime application.  An alkaloid lawn can be adjusted using Sulfur. Thatch – Thatch is an organic, and in-organic, layer...
How to Find Out if You Have Yellow Nutsedge in Your Lawn, and Get Rid of it.

How to Find Out if You Have Yellow Nutsedge in Your Lawn, and Get Rid of it.

Yellow Nutsedge is a weed that can blend in with your lawn until it begins to show its flowers and take over plots of turf. This noxious weed tends to follow the timing of Crabgrass. emergence, but requires completely different control methods. The first step is to identify if you have Nutsedge or a different weed lurking in your grass. Identification It is almost amazing how common this weed is in lawns, yet how overlooked it can be.  Nutsedge can blend well with preferable grasses because of its upright growth and tendency to only grow in clusters of 3.  Nutsedge is a perennial weed, which means it regrows from roots yearly.  Blades are much wider than regular grass and have a lighter color.  When it flowers Nutsedge can be easily noticed by its yellow spikelets.  Most products the control Crabgrass will be labeled for Nutsedge as well. The difference with this weed is that it enjoys wet, sandy soils.  So while making cultural practice changes for Crabgrass and Goosegrass, be careful not to overshoot the other way. Learn more about professional lawn weed control services here: https://greenteamct.com/page/fertilization/ Control Just like with Crabgrass, Nutsedge is rarely controlled effectively without using pre-emergent control procedures. Prodiamine or Dimension products applied in early Spring are essential to prevent seed germination of Nutsedge in early Summer. Post-emergent control measures include the use of products containing Halosulforon, sprayed multiple times at 2-6 week intervals. Spraying established Nutsedge is effective in most conditions but will likely leave an area of bare turf that will need repair in Fall. It is for this reason pre-emergent measures stand...
